LOS ANGELES, April 1 (Reuters) - The week after passing landmark healthcare reform and handing President Barack Obama an important victory, members of the U.S. Congress returned to their home districts for a recess to face constituents and justify their votes after the bruising legislative battle.
While Obama made flying visits across the country to tout the new legislation, a number of key Democrats, who led the charge for healthcare reform, seemed to keep a low profile and are doing little to beat the drum.
So much for all of this talk that voters will flock to Dems once they know what is in the health care bill, they're too embarrassed to even talk about it.
That's okay, the Republicans need to do it for them. If they have any brains that is. The GOP needs to get out there and fill the void. Define the bill and the Dems.
